iOptron Solar 60TM refractor telescope (S60) combines iOptron 60mm f/6 achromatic refracting telescope and a durable SolarLite solar filter from Thousand Oaks. With the thread-on solar filter design, the S60 provides a safer view of the solar photosphere. Watching sunspots change and travels across the disk of sun day by day.
With fully multi-coated air-spaced doublet optics, the S60 reveals brighter and sharper images. Explore and view the details of the Moon phases by removing the Solar Filter. The 60mm objective lens and short 360mm (f/6.0) focal length are perfect for taking in wide swaths of the night sky.
A green moon filter is also included to reduce irradiation, glare, and excess image brightness in lunar observing. It also improves the contrast between lunar albedo features.
The Solar 60 is an excellent mate for iOptron’s light travel mount, such as The CubeTM altitude azimuth and SmartEQTM equatorial goto telescope mounts.
